The practice's farm clinical director Colin Buchan said: “The recruitment of Susan is a really strong development for the equine practice here at Avondale Vet Group. Her enthusiasm and clinical abilities will help develop our team and advance the care offered to clients and their animals.” Susan previously worked with the practice between 2006 and 2011 before moving to an equine hospital. During this time away, she undertook extensive further study and became an Advanced Practitioner in Equine Medicine and Equine Stud Medicine.
